4 mistakes in Blast Radius

Blast Radius - S2-E10

Factual error: In this episode Barry uses rat poison to save Oliver, from a poison that coagulated blood. Though rat poison contains anticoagulants like Warfarin, this is medically wrong because, It takes at least 1-3 days for Warfarin to be effective and it may even cause excess of coagulation during this time. It could never have saved Oliver instantaneously. What Oliver needed was heparin. So Barry in real world instead of curing Oliver might just have made him much worse.

Blast Radius - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: When Oliver breaks into the building and draws his bow, there is a laser pointed at the tip of his arrow. He is told that if he moves a muscle and removes the tip of the arrow out of the of the laser that he will die. But shortly afterwards, just before Oliver looks over at the TV, you can see the arrow tip move out of the way of the laser and see the laser reach the other side of the wall for a split second. (00:29:10 - 00:29:50)

Blast Radius - S2-E10

Deliberate mistake: The "chest compressions" Diggle performs on Oliver at the beginning of this episode are laughable. He's barely applying any pressure at all, and his arms are almost straight out in front of him instead of straight down. I would have called this a character mistake since Diggle really ought to know better, but this is more of a safety issue than an oversight; real chest compressions tend to break ribs.

Guilty - S3-E6

Trivia: Oliver sticking an arrow in a boxing glove to knock out Ted without harming him is a nod to the comics, where a boxing glove arrow was quite common in his arsenal of trick arrows. (00:26:20)

Show generally

Question: Is this show going to be a part of the Justice League universe DC is creating with the Man of Steel? I'm just wondering, because A) The Green Arrow has been a member of the Justice League in the past and B) they haven't done anything yet in the show to deny or confirm that it's going to be part of that.

Chosen answer: There is no evidence at this point to suggest that this is the case. Most indications at this point suggest that Green Arrow is not under consideration as a likely character for any proposed Justice League movie.
